Haruna Hirayama, student, Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages
Selkirk College provides a lot of activities for the international students. For example, there is a kayaking trip, a trip to the Pass Creek Fall Fair, a Halloween party, and a hike. These activities give me some ideas of Canadian life and culture.

I won something very valuable during my practicum. Confidence. Cooking is more than just coming up with a good dish. It is a sum of work and personal skills and talents that need to be developed.
